      Again, BJP tells Muslims to come for Modi's rally 'looking like Muslims'

      After Jaipur, it will be Bhopal's turn to count skull caps and burqas at a BJP rally on September 25.

      The BJP has claimed that about 50,000 Muslims, including 5,000 women, will attend its "Karyakarta Mahamukbha" in Bhopal, to be addressed by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, party president Rajnath Singh and veteran leader L K Advani.

      Party sources admitted that Muslims have been specifically told to wear skull caps and burqas at the rally. State BJP minority cell chief Hidayatullah Shaikh said, "They do it on their own, but our effort will be to ensure they look like Muslims.'' He added that the party would like them to sit together.

      "It's not new for Muslims to wear skull caps and burqas at Chouhan's functions, he has done so much for them,'' said Shaikh. The minority cell has asked its district units and office-bearers to ensure maximum participation, he said.

      Another BJP leader said the seating arrangement hasn't been decided yet. "It won't be obvious like Jaipur,'' he said.

      As reported by The Indian Express, the BJP had distributed skull caps and burqas for a Modi rally in Jaipur last week.

      "We are only looking at the assembly elections, not the 2014 general elections,'' said Shaikh, when asked if the rally was an endorsement for the party's prime ministerial candidate.

        This is the BJP way to convince secular non-Muslims that it has Muslim following. What will it do with Muslims when it has Muslim following is a conjecture. It will find it has created a devil of a problem for its Hindutvadi ideology. We can watch and wait.

          Isn't that a grand idea?

          Good idea. Sikhs, Hindus, Christians, Muslims and Jains should go to BJP meetings in their religious cloths. That will show diversity in the BJP.

              Equally important that RSS cadres always be dressed in their colonially inspired khaki shorts so that their overbearing political (cultural?!) presence in all BJP activities and events be visually recorded. The `nation', as our TV anchors never fail to alert us, wants to know what its real choices are.
